Subject: RE: Brown County (1870 Census Index)
Here is the family you requested. The writing on this township is sometimes irratic.
1870 Federal Census,
George C. Sturdevant 30, stonemason,
Clarinda Sturdevant 28, keeps house,
George H. (age has smudged ink), at home,
Clara 1, at home,
Out of curiosity I checked the cemetery index and found Clarinda. Note that the spelling is different, and George's middle initial is given as H:
Cemeteries of Brown Co, IL 1825-1972
Clirinda, wife of G. H. Sturdevant, (d. 7 Sep 1871 aged 30 yrs)
The only other Sturdevant listed in the
book is in the
Edgar Sturdevant (d. 13 Feb 1863 aged 47 yrs) He is said to be a relative of the Jaques family.
In case you don't have it, here is their marriage from the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index Online:
STURDEVANT, GEORGE H. & LAROONE, CLARINDA 05/28/1861 Book A&B Lic#1010 BROWN Co, IL
Hope these items are of help to you.
Sturdevant, George C. V263
Any information on the children in this household would be helpful.
